I thought "no, there's no way he said that." He compared himself to Moses? REALLY?

This is why black colleges are going to eventually get shut down, even when states like mine(Mississippi) become majority black states.

About 2 yrs ago I'll never forget that the state college board asked all of the state's public unis/colleges to propose budget increases & infrastructure spending requests the 3 main campuses -- Southern Miss, Ole Miss & Miss. State -- all requested about 20-35 million. And these schools all have 10-20k students, if not more.

THEN -- the state's small black colleges, Alcorn, Valley St, Delta State -- all these schools that have like a thousand or 2 thousand students wanted 50, 60 million dollar gifts to build elaborate new dorms & buildings. This is even though nobody goes to these schools & they probably need to be shut down & consolidated.

This is why Dunwoody and Sandy Springs seceded from their counties in the Atlanta metro because the black county controlled govt had a bunch of "top heavy" county workers who had huge salaries & yet most of the people paying the property taxes were in the white areas of the county:

For some reason, when blacks get in charge of these schools they put all their family & friends into the desk jobs & then give them huge salaries & run the colleges or local govts into bankruptcy. Same thing everywhere. That's why Detroit is broke.

And then when the white state govt steps in to clean house they do this civil Rights Moses I have a dream crap & claim racism when it has nothing to do with racism.

These people are gonna be perpetually on welfare or govt employment -- I dunno if they're just too stupid or discriminated or what -- but they're never going to do the private sector sh*t that white people do.
